“A beautiful trail with ocean views, alder, an old growth forest, and a spectacular waterfall finish.”— Nick Weicht
At about 1.25 miles in, the trail narrows to about 1.5 feet wide and starts to climb at about a 30% grade. The trail climbs for about one mile and then goes up and down for another half mile before it tops out at 337 feet. Views from this point are spectacular.
The trail tread has moved downhill along this stretch because of major brush pushing it downhill. At this point, the trail descends at over 40% grade in some places and is difficult to pass in some areas. At about the 3-mile marker, the trail levels out and connects to the Gold Creek Campsite Trail.
